Tour details


Tours operate rain or shine. We will be walking at least 2 km along beautiful – but uneven – cobblestone streets. Most of the tour is spent walking or standing, as not all of the locations that we visit allow for seating. Please contact me directly regarding accessibility issues, as not all stops are wheelchair accessible.

 

Meeting location


We’ll meet very close to one of the major landmarks in the city center, easily accessible by metro. Exact location and detailed directions will be emailed along with your ticket confirmation.

Good to Know


What's included

All food and drink samples provided on the tour. We will be eating a lot of sweet things, so consider only having a light lunch/snack to balance out the sugar intake. Please note that the above descriptions are subject to change based on seasonal availability (i.e. hot chocolate will be switched out for something equally delicious in the summertime).

What's not included

Additional food and drink that you wish to purchase yourself. In order to keep the tour moving, I discourage shopping during the tour. However, you’ll receive an email after the tour with a list of locations visited and what we tasted at each so that you can return later to continue your “research.”

What to wear or bring

We will be walking at least 2 km along cobblestone streets, so comfortable shoes and weather-appropriate clothing is a must. Please dress appropriately (and bring an umbrella if necessary) to make sure you enjoy your time on the tour. We may sit down from time to time, but be prepared to spend most of the tour standing or walking. Again, comfortable clothing and shoes is a must. To reduce environmental waste, I don’t distribute plastic water bottles, so if you would like water during the tour, please bring a reusable water bottle with you. Some of the locations may provide water, but it is not guaranteed at all stops.

Dietary restrictions/food allergies

This tour is vegetarian. I am also happy to accommodate the following diets with advance notice:

  • Gluten-free (NOT Celiac)
  • Non-alcoholic

Any of the above dietary requirements MUST be noted when booking to allow time to make arrangements for substitutions. I ask that those with dietary restrictions book tours at least 48 hours in advance! If you are vegan, please contact me in advance of booking to discuss your options. If you have any questions regarding dietary accommodations or would like to see if I can accommodate other restrictions or food allergies (I often can – please ask!), email me directly at [email protected] before booking.

Cancellations/refunds

Please review your order and the tour details carefully before booking. Tickets are refundable until 48 hours prior to the scheduled tour (minus a 10% fee to cover the costs of processing). I am happy to reschedule your reservation for another date (pending availability) or reassign your tickets to another person with at least 48 hours notice. Any changes must be communicated in writing to [email protected].
